Freesia flowers are quite fragrant with a sweet, fruity aroma. This unique flower holds its blossoms on the upper side of the stem, with the flowers opening from the bottom to the top. Its fairly common for the buds on the tip of the stem to never open. This flower is seen at a higher price cost because it takes approximately 8 months to grow a crop of Freesia.
Freesia was originally native to Southern Africa, but is now cultivated world wide for the floral trade. They are grown in both single and double varieties. Vase life is 5 to 10 days depending on bud stage and environmental conditions. Please consult with your sales representative for this weeks availability of our “Home Grown” Freesia.
